no, the word "file:" will cause an error actually.  you're mail client is
playing games on you anyway.  here's a recycled tip that seems appropriate
for the situation:

<tip type="email">

for those of you who use outlook express for email, i'm sure you get plenty
pissed when you paste in some javascript code and outlook decides that some
of your js comment lines are supposed to be links with the file: protocol
prepended.  wanna know how to stop that?  it's super easy.  just make sure
you've got at least one space after the double slashes.

bad:  file://this is the wrong way.
good: // this is the right way.
